Gwinnett County Chick-fil-A Offers Free Sandwich With New App


Madison Jackson, Staff Writer

Chick-fil-A restaurants in Gwinnett County are now offering delivery from more than 1,100 of its restaurants nationwide as part of a partnership with DoorDash, an on-demand destination app. Chick-fil-A and DoorDash are also giving away up to 200,000 free Chick-fil-A chicken sandwiches (one per customer in participating cities) from now until Tuesday, Nov. 20, when placing an order through DoorDash. The giveaway is exclusively available through the DoorDash app and website with a $5 minimum order when using the promo code “CFADELIVERY.”

“So many of our guest’s busy lives and family commitments have them strapped for time. Delivery is one way we can help them get a quick yet high-quality meal,” said Jon Bridges, Chick-fil-A senior vice president, and chief marketing officer. “If they’re unable to come to us, we’ll come to them.”

So far this year, the company relaunched the Chick-fil-A Mobile App, opened its first delivery-focused locations in Louisville and Nashville and is testing Mealtime Kits in Atlanta restaurants.

In an effort to make the brand even more accessible, participating Chick-fil-A restaurants will deliver everything on the restaurant’s menu right to customers’ doors via DoorDash. Deliveries will be made to customers within a 10-minute radius of participating restaurants.
Chick-fil-A has been testing delivery with DoorDash since 2017 in select markets. Ninety-eight percent of respondents who used DoorDash during the pilot said the food they ordered was consistent with what they expected from Chick-fil-A. The delivery test also revealed:

  • Ninety percent of DoorDash orders include Chick-fil-A Waffle Fries
  • Orders peak during dinner and on inclement weather days
  • Delivery sales are highest for restaurants near hospitals and universities
